What happens on The Late Show not only ends up on TV and the Internet, but it may even come back to bite you.
Last week, Amy Schumer told Stephen Colbert that she had rented Jake Gyllenhaal’s house and ate some of the old cheesecake she found in his freezer. Schumer recorded herself eating it and talking to Gyllenhaal as if she attended the birthday party where it was served. She could have easily made this up, but then she rolled the clip.
When Gyllenhaal appeared on the show on Tuesday night, Colbert couldn’t resist relaying the story to him. While it’s unclear if he knew about it beforehand, Colbert gave him the perfect slice of sweet, sweet revenge—one that they shared onstage.
That looks like it might have been even more satisfying than the actual cheesecake.
